Description

In 2007, Xinhua, a Chinese international news agency, donated two computers to Herald Editor Pikirayi Deketeke and the Head of New Ziana Rangarirai Shoko in Zimbabwe. The agency also promised to continue assisting Zimbabwean media by disseminating information on the situation in the country and correcting the distortions peddled by the hostile Western media on the situation in the country. It is unclear what the financial value of these computers is.
